That's the right approach. Just make sure that you understand and follow the installation and configuration instructions at http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/ldm/ldm-current/ > Otherwise, my question is:Â What is the best way to install, > configure, and test the new version without disturbing the old > installation until we are ready to cut over? I am hoping we > can do this on the same server on which the old version is running. The LDM package is designed so that it can be installed in a sibling directory of an existing LDM installation. For example, if an existing installation directory is "~ldm/ldm-6.10.0", then the latest LDM would be installed in "~ldm/ldm-6.13.6". When all is ready, the running LDM can be switched from the old one to the new one by stopping the LDM, changing the "runtime" symbolic link in the LDM user's home-directory, and re-starting the LDM. Similarly, it's easy to revert to the previous version if the new one doesn't work. Just be sure to read, understand, and follow the installation and configuration instructions.
